Chaka is a married man, and he has six kids who attend school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are school fees for the children and food for the family.
For the past ten years, he has operated a meat goat business to earn a living. His potential customers are butchers and his fellow villagers. In addition, he operates a poultry farming business, which provides him another source of income. His major challenge is the high cost of transportation to his place of operation.
With the KES 50,000 loan, he wants to purchase five goats and a weighing machine. He decided to join Yehu to access loans, to boost his business and improve his living standard.
